In 2013, the humanitarian community launched a Philippines (Mindanao) Humanitarian Action Plan for US$ 35 million to respond to humanitarian and protection needs in Mindanao.
Since the Humanitarian Action Plan was published in December 2012,Typhoon Bopha, locally known as Pablo, swept across Mindanao causing widespread destruction. The humanitarian community appealed for US$65 million under the Bopha Action Plan as an addendum to the Humanitarian Action Plan.
At mid-year, the revised Humanitarian Action Plan seeks $91 million, with an unmet requirement of $47 million, to continue to support the Government in responding to the humanitarian and protection needs of 530,000 affected people and related capacity-building and recovery efforts. This revised plan will also address the residual early recovery, livelihood, food security and agriculture, health and education needs of Bopha-affected communities in eastern Mindanao.
